Summer Teen Volunteer Program

Please be advised that the Teen Volunteer Summer Program at Duncan Regional Hospital is officially cancelled for this summer. We feel that there is too much uncertainty right now about the COVID-19 Pandemic and as a hospital, we will be trying hard to get back to normal operations all summer.

Our first priority is the safety of our patients and staff. We regret having to make this decision, but do not want to take any risks having the teens here. Please help us spread the word if you know of anyone planning to participate in the program this summer.

Any questions may be directed to Betty Beck, CAVS, Director of Volunteer Services at betty.beck@drhhealth.org or by calling 580.251-8495.


Health Careers Club

Health Careers is a club for high school students who are interested in pursuing a health-related career.  The program at each meeting will relate to varied health careers presented by professionals in the related fields.  The club provides an opportunity for the students to become more familiar with health-related fields while planning their future goals. Membership is open to all area high school students. No dues are charged.

Meetings are held the third (3rd) Tuesday of each month from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. in the Pavilion Auditorium unless a tour is given of a specific area. If a date or meeting place is changed, an announcement will be made.

For more information, please contact the Director of Volunteer Services at 580.251.8495 or by email at betty.beck@drhhealth.org.
